The NH ABLE Plan

The NH ABLE Plan is to help individuals with disabilities save and invest money without jeopardizing their eligibility for certain means-tested benefit programs. It offers tax-advantaged savings accounts that can be used to pay for qualified disability expenses. The plan allows individuals to save and invest funds over time, with earnings on investments accumulating tax-free. The NH ABLE Plan aims to provide individuals with disabilities greater financial independence and flexibility in managing their expenses while maintaining their eligibility for important government assistance programs.
